If you were lucky enough to watch the series premiere of Fox’s new musical family drama Empire last night, then you know Taraji P. Henson is a beast.

She is so fierce as Cookie, a fresh-from-prison mother of three determined to reclaim her throne, that viewers Wednesday night were tweeting about her performance with a level of gusto and enthusiasm usually reserved for turns on more established favorites such as Scandal.

Speaking of Scandal, the ABC drama’s creator Shonda Rhimes even took to Twitter to sing Henson’s praises.
